History of the Peugeot 405
The Peugeot 405 is a big family automobile that was introduced by the French carmaker Peugeot in July 1987 and is still built under licence outside of France after being discontinued in Europe in 1997. It received the most votes in the contest's history to be named European Car of the Year in 1988. Peugeot unveiled the 405 as a four-door sedan-only body type in July 1987, and sales began shortly after on left-hand drive continental countries. It was the successor of the long-running Peugeot 305.
It was introduced to the United Kingdom in January 1988, with right-hand drive variants manufactured at the old Rootes/Chrysler factory in Ryton near Coventry and left-hand drive versions manufactured in Sochaux, France. There were four-cylinder petrol engines ranging in power from 64 to 158 horsepower. Naturally aspirated and turbocharged diesel engines were introduced to the lineup in 1988. In 1988, an estate variant was also offered. The 500,000th 405 was manufactured in 1989, while the one-millionth 405 left the Sochaux facility in 1990.
Around 2.5 million cars have been sold globally, in both LHD and RHD configurations, as saloons and estates. The Peugeot 405's 33-year manufacturing run was ranked as the sixteenth most long-lived single generation automobile in history in early 2020.
